This is an exceptional beer. I can’t understand how anyone could say that this IPA is overrated. There is a strong hops flavor with only a hint of bitterness. There is also a pleasant fruitiness that lingers on the palate. On a hot summer day this IPA really hits the spot. Hats off to the brewers of this outstanding example of an American IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 pours golden orange with a thin white head. aroma is mostly pine and citrus peel with some peach and tropical fruit. taste is pine and grapefruit... palate is dry and sticks around a long time. very good beer. Cbuk1013 (247) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Tried this with 3 other people. All over the board. One loved it, one hated it and two of us in the middle. Smells and tastes like a citrus bomb with a little bitterness. Surprisingly easy to drink. Awktoberfest (404) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Disappointment ... It can't be old they just came here... Nothing .. Aroma nothing tastes old... Finish rough... Boooooooo...

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA is overrated. Not much aroma or interesting hop notes. Medium bitterness so is drinkable. Sculpin just doesn’t live up to the hype.

Draught. All time favorite IPA. Crisp, juicy and good bitterness. Perfect summer quencher. AlainG (2342) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Orangée et limpide, une mousse plus que blanche, dense et persistante, s’étend à la parois en laissant de grosses traces baveuses. Des arômes très puissant d’agrumes, de résine de conifères et de pêche fraîche nous parviennent aux narines. Un goût intense d’amertume, apporté par les conifères et le pamplemousse blanc, qu’on aurait trempé dans du miel. C’est un tourbillon en bouche. Des saveurs fruitées qui engourdissent les papilles.

Wow. This IPA has a very strong citrus grapefruit taste. I wasn’t able to notice all the subtle flavors because of this, but it was still a good brew. I think I may stick to their big eye for now though. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Clear golden copper. Smells of light sweet hops. Tastes warm light hops, a definite citrus rind bite to these hops. Leaves a bit of that citrus bite sticky on your palate in the after taste. ansalon (4102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2013
Pours a nice amber. Aroma is lots of fruit: mango, lychee, peach, apricot. Some grass & hay and pine as well. Taste: yeah! Mango, kiwi, orange, peach, some dew grass. Insanely well balanced!!
